TU a cappella group will appear on WBAL-TV.
Santa Claus is Coming to Town, and that's great, because All I Want For Christmas is a Towson Trills holiday performance.
This week, TU's a cappella group, the Towson Trills, will perform two holiday classics before a primetime audience, when the group of seven Towson University students appears on WBAL's holiday show, "Season to Celebrate: Home for the Holidays."
The first airing of the show is at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 19. It will air again throughout the holiday season on Baltimore-area stations.
The program won an Emmy last year, and this year's version has been expanded to a full hour. The Towson Trills have an expanded role, too.
The Towson Trills recorded two songs for the program — Santa Claus is Coming to Town and All I Want For Christmas — at a WBAL TV studio.
The videos for the tracks were filmed inside the Auburn House last month.
It has been a busy month for the group. In early December, they hosted a concert at the University Union including a cappella groups from other campuses.
After the start of the New Year, the Towson Trills will participate in the International Championship of Collegiate A Capella competition.
So, who are these real life Pitch Perfect-like stars that represent TU? Leroy Hyson, Aaron Bayne, Katie Sacha, William Damanka, Harmony Reichert, Nick Zuelsdorf and Missy Melkonian.
